Connecting Octo4a to Sovol SV06

Hi There,
I’ve got problems connecting my Octo4a with the SV06.
I have blocked the power pin of the usb cable.
On the phone, octo4a is saying, that i am connected to a device.

My Settings in are
Serialport: /dev/ttyOcto4a
Baudrate: 115200

The terminal log is:

Changing monitoring state from "Offline" to "Detecting serial connection"
Performing autodetection with 1 port/baudrate candidates: /dev/ttyOcto4a@115200
Trying port /dev/ttyOcto4a, baudrate 115200

Can anybody here tell me how they have connected Octoprint / octo4a to their SV06?

Thanks, Tiefcoolkost

Did you update your firmware from the initial firmware? I know some people said Octoprint wouldn’t connect out of the box with one of the earliest firmware versions. Mine connects fine, but I flashed it with whatever version was available early Jan.

That’s the correct baud rate at least. I’m not sure what the ports look like on Android - I use Octoprint from a Pi and that connects without issue using /dev/ttyUSB0 in my case. If you haven’t ever updated your printer firmware, that might be worth a try though just to make sure you aren’t hitting that issue.

Hey @AdamByram thanks for your answer! Yesterday I have flashed the newest Firmware (2.0.??) but still nothing.
I think i will try and reinstall octo4a and see what happens.

Reinstalling octo4a did the magic, my octoprint is online :grinning:
Don’t know, what went wrong first.

What are you running the OCTO4A on? How is it connected to the SV06?

Understand it is for Android now. Got it.

Hi wayne, right, Octo4a is a way to youse Octoprint on an old Android-phone. This way i can recycle a phone with bad battery and don’t need a seperate webcam.
